benzoyl peroxide and how it compares to acne products

Recommended Posts

Guest Timehealsall

I am not sure if this goes in the regimen part of the forums, but since it kinda is related to the regimen, ill post it here.

The main thing im wondering is, Since BP is indeed irritating and does cause dry skin, my question is, how does BP compare to other acne products (retinoids, retina, differin, clindamycin, salycic acid, aha etc).

When i say compare, i mean as in what is more harsh, 2.5 % BP or these other acne products?

In my experience, Tazorac, Retin A, and sulfur are more harsh. BHA, (oral) minocycline, and (oral) tetracycline are less harsh.

I would think doxycycline would be similar to tetracycline and minocycline, but I've never been on it personally.
